What to Wear to Kill Osama bin Laden

The king of night vision goggles (NVG) Mark Owen wore the night Navy Seals killed Osama bin Laden. They were distinctive because of the sophisticated four tubes. Photograph courtesy of Owen. His helmet, which weighed under ten pounds and included $65,000 night-vision goggles with four tubes instead of two, and a Princeton Tec charge light. The helmet “could officially stop a nine-millimeter round, but in the past . . . had stopped AK-47 bullets.”
